Well-read: Rising literacy and consumer spending in newly industrialized countries are bolstering revenue

Global Book Publishing

Economic uncertainty over the past five years, especially in Europe, weighed down revenue growth in the Global Book Publishing industry. Over this period, a transition toward digital technology, such as e-books, has created a fast growing segment; however, e-books are difficult to price, which has posed an interested challenge for the industry. In the coming years, disposable income and literacy growth will support industry growth. The increasing use of the internet will facilitate book sales, and the convenience of e-books will also expand the overall book market.

This industry comprises enterprises, known as book publishers, that carry out the design, editing and marketing activities necessary for producing and distributing books. These enterprises may publish books in print, electronic or audio form.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
